Satori means sudden enlightenment, and at Satori Salon that moment comes when stylists spin clients around to face the mirror and a brand new cut and color are revealed. Inside this Washington Avenue salon in the Heights, dark bamboo paneling and wooden Buddhas create a Zen-like feeling. The Satori experience isn’t just about getting a haircut; it’s about creating the perfect hair design in a lush atmosphere. The designers here are all established stylists, and many have master-level color training and experience working on photo shoots and runway shows. A great hairstyle might not lead to sudden enlightenment, but it can definitely be a great surprise during the big reveal.
Holding doctorates in optometry and biochemistry, Dr. Zeinep O. Echetebu dispenses her extensive knowledge of vision to patients at both Gulfgate Vision and Gulf Vision. To assess eye health and help guests find the optimal form of vision correction, her services range from annual exams to visual-field-screening analyses for early detection of diseases. The staff then fits eyes for contact lenses, or leads patients through a stock of designer frames from brands such as Burberry, Juicy Couture, Gucci, and Versace to ensure that clients look stylish when they see themselves clearly in the mirror.
My Trendy Place spells out its mission with its name. Patrons peruse fashionably bejeweled bracelets and wallets, on-trend handbags, and colorful dresses that, like the mailing addresses of geese, change with the seasons. Sundry cosmetics beautify lips and lashes, and a selection of lace wigs helps elongate locks.

Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
I find [glo therapeutics] to be the best skin line. [It is an] affordable product that actually gives results. It has a clean feel and gives a natural glow for all skin types. The glo minerals makeup line is also a natural compliment to your skin [and it maintains] a natural feel and look.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
I not only [take] pride in making my clients happy but also in giving them realistic results that [are] skillfully tailored to their own natural beauty.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
I have noticed almost everyone not using SPF sunscreen. It is extremely vital to our skin that we protect it from the sun's rays. Another mistake I've found is those who do put on SPF think it's protecting them all day. SPF needs to be reapplied every two hours, especially for those who [are] outside for work or pleasure and [those] who drive a lot. SPF should be applied to the face, neck, décolleté, arms, and hands if [they are] exposed. Typically, our left side [of the] face, arms, and hands are the most exposed areas and tend to be more tanned as a result from driving. [They] also tend to [have] more unwanted skin conditions. Thus, I can't stress enough the importance of having your SPF. It also aids in [the] anti-aging of the skin.
